Description:

Everything's correct except the palp feature mentioned in UKMoths. I seem to have a mixture of underwing patterns but the upper wing of Svensson's.

Palps

The palps feature is no longer considered valid. As I understand it the extent of copper on the underside of the hindwing is the only reliably external feature.
